Make Technology Work For You!
Technology is constantly changing! I am sure that you know and recognize that. I suspect that many of your employees ask for advanced training on the many new pieces of technology available. If they do, you should strongly consider insuring that you get them what ever technology training they need to make your operation more efficient.
An article in the Billings Gazette on Sunday, April 17, 2011 shows how one local restaurant has elected to use the IPAD as their order taking device as well as their cash register. You can read about it here. I have not yet been to this new restaurant, however, I will go sometime this next week!
I have another client in the jewelery business that also uses the IPAD to multiply his in store inventory with that of his various vendors. He is able to show clients products on his web site, products on his vendors web sites as well as establish a register for his clients who are contemplating marriage! The key to this use of technology is that my client is able to compete very successfully with large web based vendors who offer little to no service after the sale. A small brick and mortar store stands behind their products and provides first class service for all of their clients, of which I am one. Check out Montague’s Jewelers here.
Technology is the key to increased sales. I have just cited two examples of businesses that I am familiar with who are using new technology. Are you thinking about using new technology? Think about it–you may be surprised at the results.
